I didn’t get a chance to post about Sunday so here you go – Sunday and Monday!
I asked DH what he wanted for his “special breakfast” (Sunday’s breakfast is normally “special” and something we don’t commonly eat). I offered him a few suggestions: pancakes, oatmeal, eggs, bacon, toast, etc.
He decided eggs, the 3 leftover pieces of bacon from Friday, and oatmeal sounded good.
So I cooked up 3 eggs, heated the 3 pieces of bacon through, and made one serving of oatmeal on the stove, then split it between us.
Perfect amount of food!
After breakfast I cleaned a bit, did some laundry, and ran some errands (I had to at least rinse my car off. I kept getting nasty road salt all over me when I get in/out of my car!!). DH did similar, and we reconvened at home for some lunch…
I spent the afternoon making phone calls back home – I try to call my family (mom, dad, and grandma) once a week to check in and chat, and I normally do it on Sunday, sometime.
After all the phone calls, I found myself a bit hungry, so I had a mug of Honey Smacks (holy sugar, batman!) and some milk. Yum! I felt like a little kid. Haha The Honey Smacks were leftover from my dad’s last visit…it’s the only cereal he’ll eat.
Dinner was Chipotle! I haven’t had Chipotle since my DH lived in Malibu, CA for graduate school. We have a local burrito place that has awesome food, so I was anxious to have Chipotle again and see how it compared.
Dinner is unpictured…I was just unprepared and forgot. Haha
I had a chicken burrito, and split an order of chips/salsa with DH. I only ate half my burrito.
Verdict? I honestly think I like the local place better. Their flavors meld together better…Chipotle, all I can taste is the spice they put on the chicken!
Dessert was my daily yogurt (French vanilla) with some of Beek’s coconut granola sprinkled in.
The reason I didn’t get to post this Sunday evening – DH and I played board games! I love board games. LOL
We played Parcheesi (just two people, though, so it went fast) and then I made DH play 1 round of Life. I haven’t played Life in forever! DH won both though – boo! In Life, he was an entertainer and retired with several million dollars, single, with one child. I, on the other hand, retired $240,000 in debt, with 4 kids and a husband. LOL
What are your favorite board/card games? Especially for 2 people!?
Great Little Linky…
Monday morning the pup woke me up about 4am. Ugh. I told her to go back to bed (and she did! It’s awesome when she listens. Haha) but my tummy was so hungry it hurt!
I did go back to sleep, but when I got up I knew I wasn’t going to make it until I was able to heat up my oatmeal for breakfast. So I grabbed a granola bar on my way out the door to tide me over.
(This is a re-enactment when I got to my desk. I’m not coordinated enough to photograph food and drive.)
After my 8am meeting, I heated up my oatmeal….
- ½ cup oatmeal
- 1 cup 1% milk
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ cup blueberries
Since I had already had “two” meals this morning, I didn’t have a snack…
I had the second half of my burrito from dinner last night, with some baked tortilla strips we had at home.
And some carrot sticks because I was feeling guilty about my veggie content today.
Barely an hour after lunch, I was feeling snacky. I pulled this bag of “Snackimals” out of my desk stash, and pulled out one serving (2 servings in the bag) and ate them.
They were perfect! Crunchy and just the right amount of sweet. I’ll have to get more of those.
Monday: 30 minutes steady state cardio + chest, triceps, shoulders strength + some stretching for my piriformis
Tuesday: 20 minutes HIIT on the elliptical + lower body strength + abs
Wednesday: After-work activities, and it’s my birthday, so probably just yoga
Thursday: 20 minutes HIIT on the stationary bike + back, biceps, abs strength + stretching for my piriformis
Friday: 30 minutes steady state cardio + full body breeze through strength (if I feel like it) …choosing 2-3 exercises from each strength training this week.
Tonight I did my 30 minutes of cardio on the stationary bike, and then did the following for chest, triceps, shoulders…
3 sets, 12 reps each:
- Flat bench barbell press 55 lbs
- Flat bench flyes 15 lb dumbbells
- Cable crossovers 25 lbs each side
- Seated dumbbell extension 20 lb dumbbell
- Cable overhead extension (you can also do these bent over) 45 lbs
- Bench dip body weight
- Seated reverse cable flye – this, but seated on the ground 20 lbs
- Plate front lift 10 lbs
- Lying lateral raise 7.5 lb. dumbbell
- Standing one-arm overhead press – this, but I hold only one weight and rest the other lightly on my waist 15 lbs
It’s Monday night – that means DH is cooking, we’re having steak, AND he’ll be serving me entirely too much pasta! LOL
We had venison steaks tonight, and the usual steamed broccoli and pasta tossed in olive oil.
I’m going to pass on a picture so I can get this posted and go relax. The antibiotics are starting to kick in, but the full workday+workout has me tuckered out.
Dessert shall be the infamous yogurt – pear flavor tonight! – with some of Beek’s granola.
